Safiri Salama is Kenya's first End-of-Life services platform, and it is changing the way people think about deathcare. It rolled out in August 2022 and focuses on providing a simple way to announce a death, plan a funeral, grieve, celebrate, and remember a life in a distant but not isolated manner. This website offers 3 main digital products: online death notices, online memorials, and the Redbook (a directory that connects service providers in the funeral industry with grieving families).
Safiri Salama is Kenya’s first End-of-Life services provider platform, changing people’s perception of deathcare. The client trusted us with the careful research, design, development, and testing of the web-based platform to launch a reliable product into the real world. Our team worked on this project in different phases to compliment the client’s unique idea and their discovery of the transforming target market. Since it was supposed to be a web-based platform, we suggested leveraging the benefits of PHP and CodeIgniter. The goal was to offer smooth performance, interactivity, and compatibility across various devices (Windows, MAC, Android, and iOS). We came up with enhanced UI/UX components and introduced a blog section for spreading awareness among the client’s target audience. This portal now allows users to use layouts and post death notices, add pictures to the Memorial gallery and more. Later, for users looking for subscriptions, we also implemented a payment gateway using MPesa. After careful testing, the platform rolled out in August 2022 and continues to help people deal with the demise of their loved ones exactly as our client desired.
Meeting Narola is one of the best things that ever happened to the deathcare startup I founded. They have a unique approach towards project analysis and estimation. Everything they present is detailed, with all tasks, methodologies, and project timelines specified. They’re great partners especially when you haven’t figured out every angle of a heavy project. Their code is top flight, communication is excellent, professional outlook and ethics are beyond reproach. I have 4 years of experience working with Narola and highly recommend them.
